I have bought a raspberry pi zero w and performed the headless setup and used ssh to connect to my pc.But it does not detect the wifi interface and always gives 'No wireless interface found' when i use the bash command 'ifconfig -a'.I have tried many things like changing the wpa-supplicant file or network interface file but nothing works.Beside that my zero w is also correctly programmed as ' sudo cat /proc/device-tree/model' returns 'Raspberry Pi Zero W Rev 1.1'.The bluetooth is also not working.Can someone help me to solve this problem.Here is the output of 'lsmod' command.I thought it will be helpful the sort out the problem:

  • What operating system you are using? Does sudo iw list give you detailed information about the wifi device? – Ingo Dec 8 '18 at 17:59
  • You "performed the headless setup" (whatever this may be) BUT how are you connected to the Pi - presumably by WiFi (or some other undisclosed method)? – Milliways Dec 8 '18 at 23:49
  • Have you set your wifi country. If not, then rfkill will disable all radio interfaces. Take a look with rfkill list all in a command line window [don't think it needs sudo]. – Dougie Dec 9 '18 at 18:10

I faced the same issue a month ago, searched everywhere but in the end, I just re-installed the operating system and everything worked without any issue.
